What kinds of apps/websites are you guys using the most these days? We do stuff on Facebook. We have some Twitter stuff coming up soon. Instagram? What else?

    Discord and facebook. Skype also, but cant advertise on that. Maybe an official deepworld discord?

    Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are the most used.

    I don't use any of them, but that's just me.

    Also YouTube/Twitch streams could be useful for advertising.

    I'm with @Debator I think an official deepworld discord could be good.

    I feel like an official chat would be troublesome, but I guess it's possible
    I use Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat the most.

    Discord and a tiny bit of twitter.
    The only problem with discord is you can't really advertise on it. You can give people a link, and it's up to them to join it like joining a forum.

    If you want a full public discord, you can partner with discord for a custom invite url.

    But as flynn stated it's less social media and more general chatter.. not to mention if you don't set up the the server (or guild as discord calls it) correctly, the server ends up being a complete mess and waste of time.

    Its pretty easy to set discord up, though, especially with extremely intelligent bots that do everything and also take care of moderation
  • MultarixMultarix In a quantum state of dead and aliveMember Posts: 2,736
    If you're using bots on discord to do all your moderating, then you're doing it wrong. A bot can only do so much. Trust me, I've worked on discord bots and you end up screwing yourself over with automatic moderation.

    And I was talking about setting up roles, permissions, channels, everything so it all works without the need of bots. And any extra functions you do need, can be achieved by coding a bot specific for that server. (Or a music bot.. go steal someone elses music bot for sure)

    Interesting. I've never heard of discord. I will check it out. I think we maybe set up an insta at some point but I'm not sure we ever use dot if we did. If we made one or revived if there is an old one, are you guys interested in game related photos or more real life Bytebin stuff or both?
  • MultarixMultarix In a quantum state of dead and aliveMember Posts: 2,736
    I'd say a bit of both, but more focused on the bytebin side of things.

    Discord is basically chat for gamers, orginally designed to be a replacement for skype and teamspeak, but also more heavily focused on the text side. This is due to a lot of gamers wanting access to a place for their guilds on MMO's where everyone can talk outside of the game, but not have to use voice chat, teamspeak lacks that, and skype is poorly organised for discussions between dozens of people.

    It's completely free, no advertisements, and the only thing you can throw your money at is Discord Nitro.. which just lets you use emotes from other servers and animate your avatar. As well as a few other things that nobody really notices.

    Discord is extremely popular now days as roles can allow users to access certain text channels, voice channels, have certain perms etc. It has basically everything a guild owner might want, less useful for the whole.. lets say "developer" side of things, and it probably won't be able to fully replace a forum in terms of functionality and keeping track of conversations that you had 3 months ago, given it's very instant message based.

    Some new bots, like Rhino, are capable to surprise you, but some require a certain member amount

    All I need in a discord server is my selfbot and my Aggro Helper, don't need any fancy moderation bots. If I need features I can code them into my selfbot or Aggro as I need them. Auto moderation really isn't needed.

    That would be good if the server has coding experts, which I am sure it would, I was just pointing the general and easier way that most servers, including mine, run on
  • MultarixMultarix In a quantum state of dead and aliveMember Posts: 2,736
    I've seen servers with 6k members running around with only a logger bot which just logs things that happen, bans, kicks, joins etc. They run quite well without bots ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Unless you're after auto-kicking someone for saying bad words, or simply deleting the message on bad words being in the message content, I don't see why you would need bots to help moderate. additional features, say.. new reddit posts or the ability to google search things with a simple command, those kinds of bots I can understand, but not actual moderation.

    Ild say both. Sneak peaks of the game updates are also nice, as we are kinda left in the dark concering updates and such
